To elaborate on what Fred said, in Theano we try to offer the same functions/methods as NumPy does with the same arguments and same behaviour, except operating on our symbolic proxies instead of actual NumPy arrays; we try to break compatibility only when absolutely necessary. 

It would be great if someone (probably Mark?) could chime in as to whether this is here to stay, regardless of the NA business. This also seems like a good candidate for a backport to subsequent NumPy 1.x releases rather than reserving it for 2.x.
